I know that some folks have volunteered at a local day care
center or similar non-profit enterprise. They would develop
a users' guide for the PC in the office and add that work
to their portfolio.
I've had similar problems when explaining several years of
work on a proprietary, on-line solution. Some prospective
employers have been satisfied to see a copy of a paper I'd
written for an evening course.
